a white house spokesman said that president obama has been opposed to right to work laws for a very long time. and that the strength of autoworkers in michigan is proof of how the unions help to build the economy and strengthen the middle class. right to work laws make it illegal for unions to automatically deduct dues from payrolls and people who support the law say that workers shouldn't have to be part of a union if they don't want to. but what really happens is nonunion workers benefit from a unionized workplace without having to financially contribute. ultimately, the laws end up cutting into union financing and weakening their bargaining power. we're back with more steph after the break. stay with us! a >>> she get's the comedians laughing... >>>that hilarious. >>>and the thinkers thinking. joy>>>okay so. there's wiggle room in the ten commandments is what you're telling me? >>she's joy behar. joy>>>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? >>>> only on current tv. brought to

in texas. she said who is a marxist in our white house? of course it is barack hussein obama and i don't know why we're not calling him what he is. >> does she know the definition of marxism? >> stephanie: it is as if when the wall fell, communism died. it didn't. today it is red on the outside and barack obama is implementing his green agenda which is marxism. >> ah, right. >> stephanie: bugga lug about -- bug gabug ga. >> i don't know how to work a shoe. >> stephanie: how do buttons go again? >> don't know how to work a shoe. >> stephanie: how do you work a shoe? they're all so different. she was offend by his narcissistic behavior at the presidential debate so much so she wanted to go up and smack his face. >> i'm sure the secret service would have loved that. >> stephanie: she decried the california marijuana legalization initiative as part of obama's anti-american plans. >> he's against it. >> he's a moron. >> stephanie: okay. she said i'm telling you barack hussein obama has to have a teleprompter beca

anybody out there. bill daley was the white house chief of staff under president obama during the debt ceiling negotiations last year. mr. daley, thank you very much for joining us this morning. >> thanks for having me. >> reporter: we were just trying to figure out what to make of this. all morning long we've been saying it's relatively good news that we haven't within hearing from the principalprincipals. what does it mean now that speaker boehner is going to be addressing the house at noon. >> i think it's a strong sign there is movement. i don't know that. i'm not on the inside. i don't know what's going on. i doubt the speaker is going to stand up and speak to the body and say nothing's happening and we're not going anywhere and just give a partisan speech. so i'm hopeful that that's what this means. i think it would be damaging to a process that has been basically as it was in '11, a pretty quiet going process kept in secret if all the sudden this becomes anything but that process. i think a very public negotiation does not help getting this done. in what is a relatively very sho

from the white house was let's fix this problem by incorporating a small businesses and less government intervention to curb the deficit. it has been astronomical. then i heard barack obama say the way we are going to do it is by making more cuts in various ways. he was saying by making more cuts and the only people it is going to hurt is the working class and somewhat of the middle-class. he should mention the fact that out of control spending has a lot to do with the credit card crunch. specifically because of the middle-class. i think if we get those tax cuts centered with them, i do not think the poll would be affected. you have these small companies that are developing, and he is saying have those small companies hire more people and get them involved, but come consumer expenditures. that is partially i think a solution. host: you are calling on the republican line and you think hillary clinton would make a good candidate. would you vote for her in 2016? caller: i think she would be a very vital aspect to the political process. as far as her running for president, 2016 -- god knows

for not 52 weeks but one week alone. the tax increases that president obama is now trying to push through will really do almost nothing to reduce our national deficit and nothing to reduce our national debt. the white house and democrats in the senate are focused only on tax hikes while they continue ignoring the real drivers of our debt, which is the out-of-control entitlement programs -- social security, medicare, and medicaid. until we find a way to do meaningful entitlement reform, no amount of tax revenue will be able to match the increase in violate spending. -- in entitlement spending. the president continues in his campaign mode going around the country to try to sell his tax hikes. the president and the democrats in congress are willing to go over the fiscal cliff in order to get those tax hikes. rather than negotiate in good faith, they're willing to try to spend their time trying to convince the american people that it's just someone else's fault. going over the fiscal cliff will mean another recession, and this one is squarely on the shoulders of president obama. it will mean

speed as we now have just 20 days left. however, neither the white house nor house speaker boehner's office are giving any public indication that either side is yet prepared to give up real ground. on a road trip yesterday, president obama indicated that he is willing to compromise, just not on that point about an increase in tax for relthy americans. meantime, speaker boehner says he is still waiting on specific spending cuts. joining us now for analysis, tony fratto, of hamilton place strategies and former white house press secretary and gerald bernstein former economic adviser to vice president joe biden. gentlemen, thank you for being here with us and getting this special day of coverage kicked off for us. >> rising early and rising above. >> exactly. let's talk about this. jared, it seems like things have gotten quieter. do you think that's the case? is that a good sign? >> i think it's probably a pretty good sign. if you look at this morning's papers, you see a number of articles suggesting that there's a bit more compromise in the air. my concern is that tomorrow's papers ma
